Duration:a few minutes
I was driving home from Thanksgiving dinner at my friends house, about five minutes away. It was a beautiful day and I had one heineken and one wine over the course of over six hours. Plus all of the beautiful food, just putting it in perspective. Along Butter Lane which is a windy lane with a stream running along it, I saw a weird round sphere, bright red and sparkling like a firecracker floating along the treetops. I was scared! It was like nothing I had ever seen. Plus there was no traffic along this road at the time so I was totally creeped out. Another car passed me going the opposite way and then one followed me onto my street, which made me feel a little bit better. I'm telling you, I was freaked out! I pulled into my driveway, locked the car door and made a beeline into my kitchen. I put my purse on the counter, picked up my kitchen phone and went back outside. I looked at the sky and the damned thing is coming from behind the houses across the street. And it looked pretty close too. My best friend lives next door and he still had company from Thanksgiving from the cars in the driveway. I dialed his number but it was on answering machine. The thing was now gone. But I know what I saw.
